About Sam

Sam Flegal has been fascinated by the strange and the macabre from a very young age. Fortunately for his budding morbid creativity, he was raised in a household that encouraged his interest in all things weird—Sam’s father was a magician and his mother a ventriloquist and clown.

In December 2003 Sam graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, released out into the world to pursue his own strange art. Since that time Sam has vigorously summoned the dark creatures of his mind to make the unreal, tangible and the imagined, concrete.

As an illustrator for both book covers and games, Sam specializes in painting strange scenes of epic fantasy and graphic horror. He describes his art as “stylized realism,” portraying fantastical things in a comic book- like graphic manner, but with an eye towards real life. Sam’s preferred medium is oil paint.

Sam also uses his strange imagination to help others realize their dreams of undeath through the power of Zombie Portraits. Like a caricature from a dark carnival, Sam takes the living and brings out their inner dead.

If you are interested in having a Zombie Portrait done of you or a loved one, or if you are interested in hiring Sam Flegal as an illustrator, contact him at sam@samflegal.com .

  1. Hey it’s Mona From Artistful.com. Saw your new blog there and got curious of course, mostly because I know you give so good information about your illustration and how you do it and I find that interesting.

    Sad is thought, my internet is pretty slow so I couldn’t open up all images but got most of the latest work, Gladiator images. The text was really informative (is that what you call it?)…. the result absolute awesome. You have good reason to be proud of yourself there.

    Anyway, love what you doing and I am a big admire. Thank you for sharing so much.

    I was thinking to mention your website in the new group I created, it might help someone to get inspired, if it is ok with you?
    Wishing you the best and hope the new year brings lots of good opportunities of all kind and live creative and prosper.
